This is a deluxe ice cream scoop with a hand turned Mediterranean Olivewood handle. Constructed from 304 stainless steel, this heavy-duty scoop features a hawk bill point designed to cut through the hardest of ice creams. This is a great gift for your ice cream lovers. Mediterranean Olivewood trees are very twisted, yielding a wood with a unique veined grain. Traditionally, olivewood symbolizes peace, wisdom and victory and many religious, historical and artistic articles are made from this ancient wood. The scoop measures 8 ½” long, the scoop is about 2” wide and the handle is about 1 ½ at the widest diameter. Multiple coats of wipe-on varnish have been applied for durability. The finish is completely food safe. If cleaning is required, hand wash with mild detergent, rinse and dry.
